    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend that students be prepared to read and truly comprehend stories and important people in the american literature history. Literature is about stories and who wrote them and why, these things are the essence of literature.

    Course highlights:

    American literature had many highlights! Learned about the puritans, religion, slavery, and faith. All stories are written because of situations and circumstances throughout life! Literature showed me that everyone has a story to tell because everyone has experienced something in their life. Whether it's true or friction, people have stories and advice to share and invoke thought, that's what American Literature is all about!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the material and not just to get it over with, but really get an understanding of how and why they wrote what they wrote. The material will probably be gone over in class but it is important that everyone have an idea of what the story is about, so during the discussion you'll get a greater understanding and not just the understanding you developed from reading on your own!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Turner is very helpful. She always takes the time to thoroughly explain things. She also likes to listen to everyone's opinions on certain subjects. She is always smiling and upbeat and is very prompt at responding to emails. She also makes herself very available to her students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about many different authors in American history. I learned about the Salem Witch trials and several other stories that are still relevant today. I enjoyed open discussions where we talked about politics, drugs, abortion, slavery,etc. It was eye opening to see how far we have come as a country, but also sad that we are still dealing with problems that arose many years ago.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you buy the book! She always reads out of the book and all tests and quizzes come from the book. You cannot pass this class if you do not read the stories assigned each week. If she sees that several people in the class have not read the stories, she will give a test immediately. As long as you do the work, she is amazing.
